I have a brand new m830lr board I'm using for a cpu upgrade, and can't get the sound to work. I'm using w2k. The manufacturer has an audio driver called "sis7012.sys" in the cd. From the windows add/remove driver utility, windows reports I'm missing the "multimedia audio controller". When windows tries to locate a suitable audio driver on my m830lr driver cd, it can't find a suitable driver.

Also, the m830lr cd has a setup utility in the sound subdirectory, but when I try to run this, I get an error "can't run 16 bit windows program; insufficient memory". I have 256MB of memory, no applications loaded yet on this brand new system so don't think it's really a memory issue.

Lastly, the driver cd I have does have a global setup utility, but it's only for use with windows 98 and it also says the audio drive needs to be run separately.

If you have an idea of what I need to do to get this working please reply.
